"Sincere condolences to the Bookman family. I only got to know Graham recently at St Louis Retirement Home, where I was part of a team from St Oswald's Parkside who provided a Communion Service and community sing-song. I was particularly struck by his beautiful tenor voice, and a memorable "Danny Boy." I'm sure he will be greatly missed."

"My condolences to the Brookman family. My railway career started with an interview to join the SAR in 1975. and continued with him as a caring "Boss" and a valued colleague as so many railwaymen found him. For many, he reflected the SAR culture and led by example throughout many years of service. He will be remembered with affection by those who survive him."

"Carrick Hill honours Graham for his long-standing interest and support in the historic house and garden. We will miss his voice at meetings reminding us to keep our promises and ensure the future of the place. We will remember Graham as a kind and determined man who knew and loved the bushland around his home. Richard Heathcote (past Director, Carrick Hill)."

"My sincere condolences to the Brookman family. I had a very high regard for Graham having got to know him while doing civil engineering work for him as a consultant .
Also as a member of the Riverside Rowing Club I am very grateful for the major contribution Graham made in establishing our wonderful boat house in its present location after the move in 1973 from the Festival Centre site.
